Heard so much hype over this beer the first time it was available, so I grabbed 2-4pks of mango and 2-4pks of peach on the next go-round. Mango was decent, cloudy yellow pour with mild carbonation, fruity up front but almost Splenda taste on the back,assuming from milk sugar. Wasn’t impressed, however it is worth a try.
The peach was terrible. Bitter fruit flavor up front and Splenda on the back. Would not but this again...these two were very different from every hazy ipa I have ever bought

A: Pours a murky medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and slightly heavier than moderate amounts of pale golden yellow + straw yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense creamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit, and tropical/papaya hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel malts with moderate amounts of lactose sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel malts with moderate amounts of caramel + lactose sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango, citrus/grapefruit, and tropical/papaya hops which imparts a minimal amount of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving a moderate lingering juicy, fruity sweet hop flavor.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp with a hint of dryness in the finish as well as a touch of alcohol warming.

O: Easy to drink with alcohol well hidden from the aroma + flavor and only slightly present in the mouthfeel. Nice hop flavors + aromas with a pleasant amount of lactose sweetness. Definitely worth grabbing again.
